Fall Colors Along Split Rock Road- Battle of Pell's Point

Center roadway. Split Rock road

View down the road way toward the direction of the British- Hessian advance.

Trees arching over the over grown road bed.

Part of the stone wall next to the former road way.

I think I angled the camera to much toward the setting sun on this shot. Maybe the light hit the edge of the pin hole?

The same day I visited Chatterton Hill in White Plans I stopped off at Split Rock golf course. Back in October my friend and I attended a tour of the Pell's Point Battlefield hosted by Saint Paul Church National Historic Site - (U.S. National Park Service). They offer tours of the battlefield about twice a year. During the tour, traces of the original Split Rock road were pointed out as well as remnants of the stone walls that played a crucial roll in the fighting.
I returned to photograph the fall colors and get some shots of the stone walls and road bed. I used the same cameras as before, DIY 35mm and WPC Holga pinhole. I shot Fuji film.

  1. Hi...
    I definitely recommend the Gaken camera, easy to assemble and cool results. I did use the stereo setting once and the result is in my blog. You'll need a software to convert the 2 stereo pictures into anaglyph format so it can be seen with the red and cyan glasses.

    Cool pinhole shots you have in here by the way...
